    Hi. I am 17 years old and going into my final year of high school next year. I am interested in doing an independent study in photography at my school. In order to have this i need to apply giving some sort of course outline, the different projects i will complete, and how i will complete them. I am wondering if there are any good sites or books you guys could lead me to. or if you have any ideas of what i should include in the course, your suggestions are appreciated.

    Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson is an excellent book about photography techniques.

    You could take a look at a on line course by Jodie Coston at www.morguefile.com go to classroom in the list on the right hand side, it`s straight forward and best of all it`s free.
